Travel Advisory

    June 1, 2021


Westbound traffic from PA will be diverted/delayed for 2 hours Wednesday at 1:00 a.m.


BEREA (June 1, 2021) – Starting early Wednesday morning at approximately 1:00 a.m. until about 3:00 a.m. (weather permitting), westbound traffic will be diverted off the Pennsylvania Turnpike at Exit 10 (I-376 – New Castle/Pittsburgh).

This diversion is necessary to remove a commercial vehicle from a ditch and repair guardrail near milepost 236.4 westbound (Springfield Township, Mahoning County) on the Ohio Turnpike. Traffic in this area is currently in a single lane of traffic westbound due to a long-term work zone. There is not enough room available to remove the commercial vehicle and maintain westbound traffic without this scheduled traffic delay.

Since the closure affects a long section of the Ohio Turnpike there are various routes motorists can take to get to their destinations. For example:

  • If motorists are continuing west on the Ohio Turnpike, they would follow I-376 west to I-80 west back to the Ohio Turnpike.
  • If their destination is Exit 232 (Youngstown), they would follow I-376 west to I-80 west to SR 711 south to I-680 south to the Ohio Turnpike.

Since the work area is just west of the Mahoning Valley Service Plaza, motorists who are parked there during this time will not be able to leave the service plaza until the work is completed.
